Jay Duplass talks up ‘Jeff’

Pic makes Toronto preem

Big boys do cry, to hear Jay Duplass tell it – at least during the world premiere of his comedy-drama “Jeff, Who Lives at Home.”

“We pretty much cried through the whole thing,” he admitted when asked at the Elgin Theater how he and brother Mark reacted during Wednesday night’s world premiere at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

Jay Duplass added that many of the most memorable moments in his life have come in movie theaters. “So to share this with all of you, that’s why you do this,” he added.

The brothers, who co-directed from their script, said the story of Jeff – portrayed by Jason Segel as a man convinced that the universe is sending him messages in Baton Rouge, La. — originated in a 2003 short.

“We love Jeff,” Mark Duplass said. “He’s got passion and he falls on his face. He’s got no embarrassment.”
